Scott moved to Nashville in the early 1990's. While there, he opened for Emmylou Harris, Bruan Bowers, Goose Creek Symphony and Suzy Bogguss. He also shared the state with Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Shelby Lynn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and Henry Gross. Scott was named Grand Prize winner at the Gumtree Folk Festival, and was a regular performer at Townes Van Zandt's bar in Nashville.
Before leaving Nashville and returning home to Virginia, Scott wrote and produced the songs on his second album, "Short Stories." Two of these songs were selected by Virginia-based DCD Records in 1998 to appear on a compilation of Shenandoah artists. Shortly after the release of this compilation, "In the Shadow of the Blue Ridge," the Canadian Games Commission and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation accepted one song for consideration for the 1999 Pan American Games. The song, "Manitoba, " was written by Canadian Dean Sayln and sung by Scott Christopher Murray.

Ron Newsome making music with his drums...
Ron Newsome, Drummer/Percussionist, and
native of Philadelphia, grew up in a musical household
Influenced by his Mother, a professional dancer, and his
Fathers mastery of the guitar, lead to his love of
percussion. Rhythm and music was a theme that began to
take shape for him early on. Playing drums came naturally
for Ron, who started at the age of 6 on oatmeal boxes and
by the age of 10, he was playing on every piece on
furniture in the house. His parents realized that buying
a set of drums was not an option, if they wanted to save
the rest of the furniture in the house. Ron inherited
those artistic genes and by 14 years of age had his own
band and bookings.

If you are a USA
Musician then get networking!
We are looking for musicians that want to share and start a "USA Musician House Concert Series". We get calls all the time from musicans saying hey man we are passing though your area and are looking to play a house concert and make some money. At that point I ask them are you willing get a house concert series going in your home town? That question either ends the call up or they keep on talking about how great they are and how it's all about them... The question is how many musicians and business people see outside the box?
